What Do You Choose: Health Or Wealth?

Most people say that health is more important than wealth. They would often cite examples of people who have lots of money but who are suffering from ill health.

While what the person has said is not wrong, and the statements definitely hold some truth. It is where the person's mindset is coming from that will determine if this statement is right for him or not.

We say things like the above statements to feel better about ourselves. But more often than not, people still feel disgruntled with their financial situation even after they have reassured themselves that health is more important than wealth.

If on the other hand, a person is not struggling financially, he would seem more credible to be in a position to say, health is more important than wealth.

The interesting thing is, people who have financial abundance would rarely say health is more important than wealth even if they may have a health challenge. To them, choosing health and wealth is not part of their agenda, because to them it is a non-issue and health and wealth are not put on the same balancing scale. To people who are abundant, they KNOW that they deserve both, it is not about choosing either or.

But it is more often an issue to those who do not have wealth. They feel it is their obligation to choose between the two.T. The well known statement by International best selling author and guru T Harv Ecker: "Give me 5 minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life."

What he says holds a lot of truth, not because T. Harv Ecker is a psychic. But the things that someone says or not say can tell us a lot about what is going on in their lives, including their financial health.

Most people have a struggling emotional relationship with money, and so they often reveal this through their conversation in what they say and what they do not say. They live in denial of how much emotional control money has over their lives.In order to improve one's outer abundance, deep inner work of one's inner abundance is necessary. The number of blindspots and lies we tell ourselves about money is staggering. And only when we have uncovered them, do we realise how much power we have given to money.

People say money is the root of all evil. The evil is not in money but in people's minds. If one's mindset is aligned with poverty -- that is evil. Because by denying one's true inheritance of abundance in one's mind, one can never be abundant in one's outer world. Poverty is the antithesis to God's abundant universe.

Abundance is a blessing from God and the Universe, to deny it is to deny ourselves of our highest potential. Abundance is not just about money, abundance is about everything else including health, talent, gifts, and so on. If we want better health and want to express our gifts and talents, then we have to accept abundance in lot, stock and barrel. We cannot choose some parts of abundance and deny other parts just because we fear it. Some people want their health but they are afraid to handle wealth so they feel they have to make a choice between the two. Once you deny one part of abundance, you are denying everything about it.

Perhaps at this point some of you may ask, well I am open to abundance but why is it that I still do not have money?

Money is obviously not going to fall from the sky, wealth are in opportunities which are delivered to you daily. Are you seeing them? Are you taking the opportunities? Are you able to overcome your fear and just act on the opportunities that are coming your way? Do you want to get over your emotional train-wrecked relationship with money? Are you willing to put in the work?

Working on one's relationship with money can be emotionally draining and it is like repairing a broken relationship with one's loved one especially dealing with betrayal issues. Are you prepared for it?

Work on your inner richness and the outer abundance will follow, you will see that that abundance is not about choosing between health and wealth. It is accepting both as your divine inheritance.
